A great 18 mile ride to Fort Erie with changing views ending with a beach stop looking at Lake Erie and Buffalo NY. Very pretty. A few too many road crossings interrupted the tempo and flow of the ride but the signage was great.

Trail is well maintained but somewhat isolated. We rode to Fort Erie and back. We took a detour to Crystal Beach. Very crowded and only porta potties for all those people.
